Snowshoeing on a Sunny Mt. Hood Day

The coolest thing about not working full time is that you can goof off when the there’s snow on the mountain and the sun is shining. A bit of a rarity around here. Ten minutes to pack up the van and you’re out the door. I never get tired of it.

Otter's post is great. The camping van is a great way to get out in the winter time. A warm home on wheels. This is my snowshoeing 2019 trip w my son. Will be heading north (Michigan's U.P.) soon for another great time.

Wow! Upers really know how to do it up in the snow. That dining room in the campground (?) was something else! And I’m impressed that you guys slept in the van in those temps. Puts me to shame here in the PNW. The coldest I ever felt was sleeping in a snow cave as part of our ski patrol training. Not an experience I ever sought out again.

But I do love the snow and you folks have a ton of it there. Make sure to post up pics of your next trip for us.

Thanks
The State Park has electrical hookups active over the winter. Our van has a built in 800w/1500w thermostat controlled electric heater near the front. In winter I also take a portable electric heater and place that in the bathroom at the rear of the van. For most temperatures the van is very comfortable with both set at 800w's. At night leave the front heater on set at 800w's and set its thermostat to 60F. Comfortable sleeping in loft or below. The Camp 33 restaurant is a private concession at the park w micro brewery and excellent food. Lots of snowmobile-rs in the winter months.
